Politics and the Power of Print

We're pleased to welcome delegates to the Book History Research Network Study Day here at the Library today. The seminar is entitled 'Politics and the Power of Print' and those attending will be discussing the image of the book as a central element of political propaganda. Questions such as 'In what ways have cultures of books and reading shaped political action and ideologies?' and 'How has politics affected the form and understanding of texts?' will be discussed, and plenty of tea and biscuits consumed.
